The simplest way to update a BIOS is via USB, and today in the Ge Force Garage we'll show you how. To update your BIOS, first check your currently installed BIOS version.It’s easy to determine your currently installed BIOS.You will need a Phillips-head screwdriver to complete this part of the installation process.The PS3 owner's manual also includes step-by-step details on how to replace the hard drive, in case you need more instructions.It doesn't matter if you have the 20GB, 60GB, or even the new 80GB Play Station 3--you can always use more storage space.All that available hard-disk space quickly disappears once you start downloading games, demos, and HD videos.If you have an external hard drive that's formatted in NTFS, you can use the Disk Management utility in Windows to reformat the drive, but you'll need to create partitions on large external hard drives because Windows can only do FAT32 on drives 32GB or smaller.

Like most things, a strong foundation is key to the efficiency of any system and updating your motherboard’s basic input/output system (BIOS) can do everything from adding new features and functions, support for new CPUs, squashing bugs, refreshing a corrupted UEFI environment, and much more.

However, giving console owners that freedom means that aspiring upgraders will need to know how to select the right hard-drive upgrade and the proper installation technique.

The first step to replacing the hard disk is going to the store or visiting an online retailer to pick up a new hard disk.

If you still want to make the drive useful, you can buy an external drive enclosure to make it into a portable storage device.

Much like the PS4, prospective Xbox One owners can download the system's day-one update early to a USB stick.

After checking their OS version on their Xbox One consoles, they can then download one of two compressed files to their computer from the Xbox support page, unzip them and copy the contents to the root of the USB stick.
